I cut potatoes thinly and cook at 400 for 30 minutes in olive oil. You can also make other veggie chips that way. Safe and good. I can't eat processed foods. I'm very sensitive.

For potato chips I can only eat plain Wavy Lays or Kettle chips. I can't eat the Stax because they have soy. For corn chips I make my own most of the time using Mission Corn tortillas. I spray with olive oil, cut with a pizza cutter and bake them on a baking sheet with holes in it at 325 for 12-15 minutes or until crispy. I don't buy the bagged ones very often but I have been able to eat Garden of Eatin blue corn chips, Grande Restaurant style Gluten free and sometimes Fritos. Fritos however made me sick last itme I ate them--maybe I ate too much corn that day? I just threw up about 20 minutes later and had heartburn. I didn't have a gltuen reaction but I haven't eaten them since.

I just looked these up on the internet. I had never heard of them. They look great!

Thanks

Late July Organic chips might be worth looking at. They are GFCO certified, so if lay's staxx work with you, I would imagine these should as well. ( http://www.latejuly.com/ )

I haven't tried them myself, but my son seems to like them. :-)

Both my daughter and I had a terrible reaction to fritos before, too. She's not sensitive to corn much, best I can tell, but we both got our gluten reaction to that one like crazy (before I knew I was super sensitive).

Although I was talking with the frito's company today and the young man said that while they didn't test their products for gluten before, they have started testing them periodically now. It's still <20ppm only, but better than it was!

And the really interesting part. We start talking super sensitivity comes up, and he mentions that one of his good friends is sensitive to lower concentrations than 20ppm, too, and keeps wishing for lower ppm standards.

heh - super sensitives are like ninjas. :ph34r: We are everywhere. :lol:

Interesting to know! So perhaps my sensitive system did detect the gluten and throwing up prevented me from getting the rest of my symptoms. I have reacted by throwing up one other time--when I was a given regualar pasta at Olive Garden and told it was gluten-free. Throwing up that time did not prevent me from getting gluten symptoms however--probably because of the large amount versus just a trace in the Fritos. :ph34r: We need to start the super sensitive ninja club! :lol:

Fritos were sometimes okay and sometimes not when I tried them years ago. I took them out.

Food Should Taste Good chips are AMAZING!!! Like replacement wheat thins! YUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMY!!!

I also like Boulder Canyon Chips. http://www.bouldercanyonfoods.com/

They write gluten free right on the front of the bag! Bless their lovely hearts. And their lovely chips!

And I've never had a problem with the Mission chips either.

It's the small indulgences that we must find that help us enjoy, right? :P

Well, I must revise my above statement. However, eating half a bag of chips is really never a good idea, but what's done is done. Poor Boulder Canyon Chips are now (at the very least) on my caution list, if I can restrict myself to less than 1/2 a bag. So they probably won't be bought again! I did notice an increased selection at the store, and the increase was of non-gluten free items. So oh well. I'm off to go feed my hungry self. Again.

I noticed that no one really mentioned Kettle Brand Chips. It is listed on the back of the package if they are gluten-free or not. I think my husband does well with those but after reading the posts from people I wonder if we are monitoring his diet close enough. He is having tests run this week because he never feels well anymore. It's almost hard to pinpoint if he's been contaminated unless he has the specific symptoms that we know very well.

My daughter,a super sensitive, had problems with Kettle chips. The rest of us didn't try them. I got them because they had been recommended for super sensitives. I noticed that they make both gluten containing chips and gluten free chips. Does anyone know if they are made in separate facilities?

Did your husband do well when he first went gluten free? I did very well for close to 2 years,but have really struggled for quite some time now. If our patterns are similar, maybe we could help each other figure this thing out.

I have problems with Kettle brand chips but I've determined it's safflower oil that is the problem for me, not gluten per se. I have trouble with any chip that uses safflower oil.

What I think is that safflower oil may be harvested on gluten-contaminated harvesting equipment or some other method of contamination of the oil Or it could just be the oil itself, but I don't have trouble with other oils.

Called 'em a few weeks back and they said their gluten free chips are made in a gluten-free facility. Every batch tested to <20ppm. Something new since I called a couple years ago is that they now require any company supplying them with flavorings to test the flavorings as < 10 ppm before the company will accept them.

That said, my daughter will get ill off of these too, if she eats too many. A small bowlful seems okay, but she's had 1/2 a bag before and started reacting.

My kids have tried a chip they liked, called Laurell Hill, nacho flavor, that they said reminded them a lot of the Doritos chip that they used to have. This kind:

Laurellhillfoods.com

These chips are GFCO certified, so they should be less of a cc risk than Doritos. :-)

Thanks!

Any other super sensitives doing ok with Lays Stax as GFreeMO mentioned? I would be in heaven if I could find a potato chip that works! As a side note, I made my own potato chips using canola oil. Had gut pain the next day. Might need to try other oils. I've noticed some debate about oils from time to time on this site. The oils may be the source of cc in chips. dilletantesteph has mentioned that she uses olive oil. Will try that next.

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
